Yup, that used to be my go-to, and I need to remember it more often when clipping in Firefox - I do so love its automatic snap to page elements. I just wish it had a simple editor designed for black-out/highlight, arrows, and text - my 99% use cases.


I have often used PowerPoint for this, paste the image, blackout with solid boxes, and many arrow types to choose from. Then I either save the slide as an image or ctrl-A and paste into Paint and save that.

P.S. Here's an example of an image grabbed in snip & sketch and modified in Paint 3D:
